government has authorized the use of force and authorized its military to cross the border into syria if necessary. they say that is a warning, not yet a declaration of war. this began midday when a syrian mortar shell landed inside a turkish border village. that killed five people and the response by turkey was almost immediately with responding with retal story shelling, not only shelling but also diplomatically they invoked the defense clause of the nato treaty and called for an emergency meeting in brussels. the other thing turkey has been doing over the past month or so is massing forces along their border, and those forces both the tanks and their artillery was used in artillery barrages that lasted about 18 hours against targets there inside syria. as for the syrians, they say this was an accident, they promise it will not happen again, and it appears as though the syrians have enough problems on their hands, they do not want to start a war with turkey going forward, though, you do have a dangerous dynamic set up here. all of a sudden now curbing key is on a war footing. it is

if you lower the taxes, people have more money, they spend more money, the federal government takes in more. lou: it will is a result of the growth that it stimulates. but we have to put forward a very important caveat. this president has been in office ends 2009. he has not once performed at the tax code, has not once altered the direction of the tax, spending, and borrowing of the government. romney is talking about reversing all of that. truth is, megyn, without reducing spending and taking control of that deficit and this mountain of debt, there is no amount of taxation available to the most mystical and brilliant economists that would result in that. megyn: you have to question what that something is. they have very different visions. for the record, ronald reagan reduced taxes on the rich and revenues went up. lou: governor romney made it clear that he will work with the democrats. megyn: lou dobbs, thank you so much. the supreme court this week takes up a case that could do away with decades of affirmative action. we will look at this long-standing law and why one property ma
